Agilent / HP 37718A
37718A communications performance
analyzer OmniBER 718 (HP 37718A) offers a single box field portable
multi-rate SDH/SONET tester up to 2.5 Gb/s (STM-16/OC-48).
The analyzer is ideally suited to installation,
maintenance, commissioning, system verification
and manufacture of SDH/SONET transport networks
and network equipment.
POS and ATM devices can also be tested up to 2.5
Gb/s by simply adding the appropriate payload mapping
options. The latest enhancements to the OmniBER
718 analyzer include a choice of instrument variants
for multi-rate testing. This new choice allows you
to buy the SDH only or SDH/SONET test configuration
you need today and upgrade in the future as your
testing needs move to higher rates.

& Smart Tests
718 analyzer lets you start testing with just two
key presses! With the analyzer connected to any
signal, simply press the Smart Test key on the front
panel, select Smartsetup and the instrumentís autodiscover
wizard automatically identifies the line rate and
payload structure of the unknown input signal. The
analyzer also automatically displays all of the
J1 trace identifiers, that is 48 J1 identifiers
in an OC-48 signal, or 16 in an STM-16 signal. With
the signal structure now identified itís a simple
process, using the cursor control keys, to select
a channel of interest and to explore right down
into the payload.
The front panel Smart Test key offers a simple shortcut
to the extensive capabilities of the OmniBER 718
analyzer. The Smart Tests are grouped together in
functional blocks so you donít need to be an instrument
Ďexpertí to get tests up and running quickly.
switch time measurement
disruption measurement couldnít be simpler than
with the OmniBER 718 analyzer. Using dedicated hardware,
the analyzer measures the length of the error burst
associated with a protection switch. Unlike the
old method of correlating bit errors with time,
the unique implementation in the analyzer is accurate
to 50 μs with a resolution of 1 μs. Service disruption
is also available on ATM signals.
